Snoozing police officers of the Pasay City Police Community Precinct 8 (PCP 8) were caught off guard by Director Oscar Albayalde, no less than the chief of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO), who conducted a surprise inspection of precincts in the Southern Police District on Wednesday.

During the surprise inspection, Albayalde scolded everyone, including Senior Insp. Ferdinand Duren, PCP 8 chief.


“Ikaw ang PCP commander dito? Alam mo tulog ang mga tao mo? Pati ikaw tulog. Anong klaseng mga ano kayo,” Albayalde told Duren.

[You’re the PCP commander her? Do you know your people are asleep? And even you are asleep. What kind of (cops) are you?]


Another police officer, who said he was supposed to be on patrol, but was sleeping at the precinct, also got a tongue-lashing from the NCRPO chief.

“Beat patrol? Sa tingin mo nagbe-beat patrol ka? Hanggang saan na ba ang narating mo sa kaka-beat patrol mo sa tulog mo? Saan ka na nakarating sa panaginip?” Albayalde said.

[Beat patrol? You really think you’re on beat patrol? So how far did you go in your beat patrol while asleep? Where place did you reach in your dreams?]

Here’s a video of the incident from the NCRPO:
